2009 YZ250F front fork springs vs 2006


Recommended Posts

I've been researching and it appears the front fork springs in the 2009 are stiffer than the 2006 ones. Can anyone confirm this, if it's true?

If so I've been feeling pretty strange getting used to the new bike and it does get bouncy on some stuff, especilly in turns (tuned some of it out with rebound, will continue to tweak with time).

Would it be worth my while to swap them out or just work on getting the '09 stock dialed in?

Thanks!

the 06 is softer on main spring by one rate and inner chamber spring as well.

Interesting... Thanks!

I softened the compression a few clicks and the bike has smoothed out a bit on the sharp hits. I wonder if I should swap both the front fork springs since I swapped the rear to keep things in sync.

Any opinion on that?

Thanks for the info!

i had a 06 yzf 250 i am about 155lb but was more like 160lb at the time, i actually went softer on the fork and shock springs, i went to 0.42 and a 5.0 so yes i would use the 06 springs over the 09s for you no question.
